A military-style bagpipe and drum band from Annville, Lebanon County, in south-central Pennsylvania
Oldies and sometimes goodies of Scottish humor - credits to many sources
At a solemn memorial service for a pipe band drummer, the piper approached the casket preparing to play. Just as he blew up his bag and prepared to strike in, the funeral director rushed up to the casket, hands in air, crying "stop, stop". The funeral director then gently closed the casket and, turning to the astonished piper, said "now you can play. The drummer gave specific instructions that the casket lid had to be closed before you started."
A Scotsman with a wee tendency to sip the breath of the heather sat down to rest beside a tree on the way home from his pub in the evening. Two young lasses walked by later in the evening and seeing the Scotsman sound asleep got to discussing what it is that Scotsmen wear under their kilts. They decided that there would never be a better time to find out. The one lass took a ribbon from her hair and tied it at a strategic location. The next morning the Scotsman awakened and walked behind a tree to take care of nature. When he looked down he was astounded to see the ribbon. He burst out "Laddie, I dinna know where you were last night, but I'm proud to see that you won the blue ribbon."
And, on that ages old question of what is under the kilt, some alternatives are...

He tried to stand again, but to no avail, falling flat on his face. He decided

Once outside, he stood up and, sure enough, fell flat on his face. So, being a

A Scottish shepherd was herding his flock in a remote pasture when suddenly a brand new Range Rover advanced out of a dust cloud towards him. The driver, a young man in an Armani suit, Gucci shoes, Ray Ban sunglasses and a Hermes tie leaned out of the window and asked the shepherd...
'If I can tell you exactly how many sheep you have in your flock, will you let me have one?' The shepherd looks at the young man, then at his peacefully grazing flock and calmly answers 'Aye!'
The yuppie parks the car, whips out his notebook, connects it to mobile phone, surfs to a NASA page on the Internet where he calls up a satellite navigation system, scans the area, opens up a database and some 30 Excel spreadsheets with complex formulae. Finally he prints out a 10 page report on his hi-tech miniaturized printer, turns to the shepherd and says 'You have exactly 1586 sheep here!'
That's right said the shepherd, and as agreed, you can take one of the sheep. He
watches as the young man makes a selection and bundles it in his Range Rover.
Then he says 'If I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me my sheep back?' 'OK - why not?' answers the young man. 'You are a consultant' says the shepherd. 'That's right' says the yuppie 'How did you guess?' 'Easy' answers the shepherd. 'You turn up here although nobody called you...you want to be paid for the answer to a question when I already knew the answer...and you don't know a damned thing about my business. That's obvious. Now give me back my dog.'
An elderly Scotsman came to the U.S. to visit his son. While here, he became very sick and was rushed to the hospital. His son asked him, "Father, is there anything you would like to have?" "Aye," replied his father, "I would like to 'ear the music of me 'omeland." So the son went out, rented a bagpiper, took him to the hospital and for several hours played the droaning Scottish music so well known by the elderly Scotsman. Suddenly the old man got up, got dressed, and walked out of the hospital a well man. The only problem was that all of the other patients in the hospital died.
